Ralph Byrd changes hats from a fedora to a Stetson
Production on Trigger Trio started out just as another B western to meet Republic's schedule. However, a quick change of cast members was needed when Bob Livingston suffered a head injury while swimming at a lake near location. Ralph Byrd was chosen as Stony Brooke's cousin. Byrd had already proved himself as a popular hero, thrilling youngsters in cliffhanger endings as Dick Tracy. It was the first time a new cast member was added to the 3-M series, but certainly not the last. From 1936-43, various Western veterans (Tom Tyler, Bob Steele, Raymond Hatton, Duncan Renaldo) and a few newcomers (pre-Mouseketeer Jimmy Dodd) would join the popular western trio.
